  • a morning.

  • Guys, let's kick off this live stream.

  • Really on.

  • Let's see.

  • In America, if you guys are watching from the state, it's still Christmas there at the moment.

  • So merry Christmas to those of you guys who are on that side of the world.

  • Works till Christmas.

  • Over here in Korea, Christmas is done.

  • And it was a pretty good day.

  • Had a good Christmas on.

  • My kids were very happy with their presence and everything.

  • So yeah, went pretty well.

  • I didn't really get any Gump le or anything, really.

  • That exciting, that cool, I think, like, uh, from my family or anything.

  • I did pick up a couple things for myself.

  • Ah, Doctor.

  • Yes?

  • I have two kids, actually.

  • I have a son and a daughter.

  • Uh, but yeah, so I didn't get any gunplay or anything.

  • Ah, like related to the at all from my family.

  • I don't, uh I don't typically get that stuff for my family, but I didn't get a couple things for myself at the mart here in Korea, which is like a bee like supermarket and like Mars, something like in America would be certainly sort of similar to like target in America if you guys are familiar with that.

  • So where they have clothes and like all sorts of like household items and stuff as well as food and all of that and everything as well, it's come everything.

  • They're here in Korea.

  • They do also sell gum pleh there in those stores.

  • But typically it's overpriced.

  • It's not really worth ever buying their I've bought in gum PLO from there a couple times.

  • Rarely, like when I first lived in Korea many years ago.

  • Ah, when I just didn't really know very much better or I was just too impatient to go.

  • I couldn't buy stuff online at the time, I didn't know how.

  • Ah, and as there's no other like really good model kits shops here like in area where I live.

  • So if I want to go into a shop and buy something, then the only real option was going to the march there, where it's a little bit overpriced.

  • Still, of course, cheaper than buying model kits in the States or anything.

  • But my point is, after a long explanation about that, my point is that usually during the holidays they will have some of the model kits on sale, especially some of the larger stuff.

  • I don't think I've ever seen any perfect grades in the mark.

  • But the mega size kits are usually always on sale at the holiday time because I think just because they're just pretty expensive, so people typically don't really buy them from the Mars.

  • So they're just trying to get rid of them while they can during the holidays.

  • And so mega size kits were on sale this year again.

  • And so I took the opportunity to pick up Uh, is I got the mega size are x 78 gonna not have built and reviewed the clear color version of this, which I borrowed from Alex.

  • He lent me his to build in review for you guys here.

  • Ah, but just because this is like the regular version, I figure I might as well do actual, like review of this version.

  • Just people can kind of get to look at this so I will do, like, just so quick.

  • I think I'm gonna do it like an Unboxing interview video all in one because the kid doesn't really do a whole lot, so there's not really a pope point to really do much of a full on review for it.

  • So I'm just gonna wrap that all into one video, and then this is just basically gonna be just a work in progress.

  • Serious?

  • I'll show you guys how to fix some of the seam lines and stuff with this because it does have a good amount of steam lines on it.

  • How to fix those and how to, uh, build the kid around the sea mines so that you don't have to mask anything.

  • You can take different things apart and all that.

  • Eso that and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be painting this and the prototype are not protect the real type colors, which actually includes here in the manual.

  • I'll show you this.

  • I can show you up close.

  • Oh, no.

  • You can see that up there in the corner.

  • But it does include the, uh, like a thing about the painting as an alternate color scheme in the new type are not do type in the real type colors s.

  • So that's my plan for this just to do just a work in progress, Siris on that, just showing how to fix the themes and prep this for painting and then just painting it up in the real tight color scheme.

  • And that'll just be just kind of relatively quick projects.

  • I don't think it's really going to take all that long.

  • They are really large kits, though, so just because the size they do to kind of take a little longer to paint everything just because the size of them but the other s o that waas on sale ended up getting this for around $50.

  • So not too bad at all.

  • About 50 bucks for that kid's a lot of kit for 50 bucks is not bad.

  • And then also got this guy, which I already so have snapped up last night, huh?

  • It was Christmas nights, and, uh, I wanted to just kind of relax a little bit.

  • So I already built this guy up.

  • This is BB Mega sized Unicorn here are very large, and I've already built, reviewed, painted and sold one of these actually already.

  • So I've got that experience.

  • But what I got this one for is because I've been watching the work in progress videos.

  • Bye, Andy.

  • Although it's known online as back stepped.

  • If you guys don't follow him, you should check out his social media.

  • Uh, he's been doing a work in progress.

  • The work in progress, not video.

  • He doesn't do videos, but maybe someday he's been doing a work in progress series of converting the mega sized unicorn into unicorn mode.

  • Uh, and it looks really interesting, Really fun.

  • So I really wanted to try it out myself.

  • So of total credit to Andy for the idea of that project, But I'm gonna take a stab it as well.

  • Ah, and so that it was I've been thinking about that.

  • I've been watching his work in progress, Siri's, and I thought it looks really fun.

  • And then just this past week, the kid was on sale at the Morris.

  • I thought, uh, okay, I'm gonna try it.

  • I'm gonna do it.

  • So Ah, that kit was about $70.

  • 70 bucks for the mega sized unicorn is also really, really good price.

  • So All right, well, there you go.

  • Ah, it's a good chance.

  • So got that.

  • Got it all snapped up.

  • And that'll be also a project that will be working on here when, a soon as I can.

  • Ah, all right.

  • So, yeah, I got a couple of mega size gets for myself for Christmas and they really that was about it.

  • I did get this from my wife, which is not complete related, but it's pretty cool.

  • It's a portable Bluetooth speaker, so he's got a speaker there at the back.

  • It's pretty cool.

  • Actually, I'm not really like I like Pokemon.

  • And I played it a bunch, of course, when I was younger, But I don't like, play it these days and I don't like, really even talk about it a lot.

  • Like I watch it sometimes, like, occasionally shown some episodes there, stuff like to my son, and he likes it well enough, like without being really super into it.

  • But I've never really expressed, like, really being that into Pokemon.

  • So not really sure where my wife got the idea to get this for me, But I think she just wanted to get me a Bluetooth speaker.

  • Just, uh she said she wanted me to this have, ah, speaker to use we just while I'm here, working all day in the in the office, as it were.

  • Ah, so I guess she found this one and thought it looked cool.

  • It is pretty cool.

  • So anyway works well.

  • The Pok Ball, Bluetooth Speaker.

  • So I've got that now.

  • That was pretty awesome.

  • But anyway, let's get into the build of the cause, shall we?

  • That was some Christmas stuff.

  • Uh, and I'm going to first just put the runners in order, so it's easy to find the stuff, so just give me a moment, get these are all they are.

  • Still in order from one of the damn boxing.

  • I forgot.

  • Okay, so that's convenient.

  • So I'm going to set these over here, I think.

  • Where?

  • Out of the way.

  • Over here.

  • Work.

  • So let's get to going.

  • What did you guys get for Christmas?

  • Let me know.

  • Ah, in the chat, you guys let me know.

  • Let each other know.

  • What did you all get for Christmas?

  • You get anything cool?

  • Anything fun?

  • Gumpawa or not?

  • So usually when I'm doing these live builds Ah, If you guys have watched me before, I'm usually I've got all of, like the prep work everything that parts are already cut out.

  • The numbers we're moving all that prep work is all done already, but in this case, I didn't want to do that just because a little bit harder to do that with these kids, just by the way of their construction.

  • Ah, but the other reason is because I just thought that probably a lot more people are unfamiliar with just how machine Krieger kits are.

  • And I really I have only built ah couple as well.

  • So I mean, I'm not really the most experience one either.

  • Uh, so I thought to be a good experience just for people who are interested to just see a little bit more about what Mac kits are all about this being, ah, pretty standard ish one.

  • I mean, it's not like a low one of the larger designs, like the lunar diver or the guns or something like that.

  • Um, so hopefully this should be interesting for any of you guys who are who are interested.

  • And this stuff.

  • Uh, see what you guys gave you got the master grade.

  • That's I tell the best grade gym sniper to Quanta Gunners, aka Warrior.

  • That's a nice build.

  • Their gotta pee.

  • GRX 70 An apple watch.

  • All right.

  • Got the Gundam thrown.

  • H g Very nice.

  • we'll see what else the gentle get here.

  • You got the Google assistant, which you're using to watch me right now.

  • That's cool.

  • That's my glasses are dirty.

  • Sorry.

  • I'm really, really lazy about cleaning my glasses.

  • So my wife is always giving me crap about having dirty ass glasses all the time because I'm just Yeah, lazy, uh, a two.

  • And you guys, I guess you can see the instructions pretty well.

  • I mean, just the camera, but the instructions there look, a bit of it blown out.

  • I want you guys to see as much as possible here.

  • So let's go here up the contrast and down brightness.

  • None of the exposure down a little bit.

  • A little bit more.

  • Okay.

  • Just adjusting the camera settings, Live it there.

  • So you guys can see the instructions a little bit more as well.

  • Okay.

  • On as I was saying, this is a 11.

  • The construction of these just putting to get them together.

  • It's not that complicated.

  • Uh oh.

  • I mean, they are, I think, in a sense, a lot more like traditional model kits than, uh, compared to gumpawa.

  • But I think certainly shouldn't feel like, really intimidated or anything.

  • If you feel like I'm still a beginner, I'm not sure if I can really take something on like that.

  • Ah, at least from my experience with the Mac, it's that I've built.

  • I don't think that even if you are still relatively new to model building in general, that you should really be too intimidated.

  • They definitely are meant to be painted more so than gonna model.

  • Kits are, of course, but, um, if you're wanting to try some painting now, they do kind of have like there's, of course, like a signature machine Krieger style of painting.

  • But of course, there's no there's no rules that obviously, when you buy the kit, you're not like signing a contract to have to paint the kid in that style.

  • So, Gerard, thank you.

  • Merry Christmas to you, too, on just once again, as always, guys, you tuning in new old regular viewers are not.

  • If you have questions about the build or if there's anything in general, I suppose just put your questions in all caps or tag me in your comments that I can see it clearly when I check out the chat here.

  • Uh, you, uh Cody Flyers.

  • No, I don't do one cut.

  • You see, I just do one cut to get it off the runner and that I use Ah, hobby knife to clean up the numbers here.

  • And I'm just going to do for the time being, because then this is after this is just put together.

  • It is going to then also, I'm gonna have to go back on just cleanup Maur Doom or standing and stuff like that.

  • So it's not gonna be I'm not building this at the moment in preparation for painting will have to go back in and get everything all cleaned up, more so to get all prepped for painting.

  • So I'm just gonna do very simple number removal on this.

  • Probably not going to even do a whole lot of standing, even the numbers or anything like that, because I'm gonna have to go back in and sand everything to get it prepped for painting anyway.

  • So for the time being, we're just focused on just just showing the building process.

  • That's kind of how the kit comes together.

  • So that is going to be the focus of this.

  • So I'm just gonna be trying to get the nubs cleaned up quickly.

  • And simply for the time being, this using hobby knife.

  • So Thea Daniel asked Where do babies come from?

  • You know, Daniel, you'd think that I would know because I already had two of them.

  • But I still I just don't really know.

  • You know, there's so many conflicting stories and honestly, just a lot of fake news out there.

  • I just don't know really what to believe.

  • So if anyone else has any ideas on the subject, actually feel free to share because, you know, I'm open to hearing what you guys think about that.

  • I'm not really quite made up my mind.

  • Ah, and Christopher asked.

  • Have you ever built Neto Mac kits?

  • No, I have not.

  • I have not built one of those.

  • I almost bought one.

  • Ah, on the most recent trip to Tokyo.

  • And maybe I will in the future, Huh?

  • So I'm not, like, intentionally avoided them.

  • I know that there, uh, not as easy to build as the recent wave and Hasegawa kits.

  • Another needle.

  • Kids there.

  • Ah, a little bit trickier to build from what I've heard, anyway, uh, but I don't know if you've Christophe you've built some Anita kits interested to hear your thoughts on them?

  • Because there are pretty a couple of pretty cool ones that you occasionally come across fear checking out like the second hand shops around there in Akihabara.

  • So their possible it might be something that I'll be in the market for next time I'm there.

  • So be interested to hear your thoughts.

  • Ah, e years.

  • Ooh asked.

  • Ah, Merry Christmas.

  • What can I do to make my HD unicorn?

  • Gundam?

  • Look, uh, sorry.

  • I got that part of the screen covered.

  • Ah, look better.

  • Yes.

  • To make your HD unicorn gonna look better.

  • Ah, dinks.

  • Um, panel lining.

  • I'd say you'd be the first thing if you're not gonna go the whole way to do the painting if you just want to just make it look a little bit better Pen aligning that.

  • And I would not use black.

  • That was me.

  • Uh, I would use it.

  • Depends on which version of the Unicorn if it's like the final battle version depends what color the psycho frame is.

  • I mean, assuming it's the red cycle frame version, I would say, Do you're penalizing either gray or like Ah, Ah, kind of 10 kind of color.

  • I wouldn't get a 10.

  • That's really yellow.

  • Something like a sandy yellow.

  • Something like that.

  • I wouldn't go that yellow with it, but, like does a light brown color, I think also looks nice because that kid, uh, and again it depends on which version of the kids.

  • But, um, which version of a stick it?
